Liberty Charm

My friend who gifted me the polishes from Europe also gave me a teaspoon and butter spreader from Sabre Paris.  The butter spreader is a floral Liberty print and I thought it would be fun to try to replicate the print on my nails.


I didn't do a base colour, but maybe I should have, I dunno.  I was going to be doing super layered stamping so I thought a base colour wasn't needed  I used Wet N Wild Craze Mad-Styles, Etude House WH709 and WH708 to stamp on my nails multiple times until the the design was opaque.  I used my large plate, but the images I used can be found on Konad plates m60 and m64, the grid style images. I didn't count how many times I stamped on my nails, but quite a bit.  I wanted to achieve a woven fabric look, and I think it looks quite nice, though it turned out a bit dark.  The grey I used turned out darker than I thought it would when stamped.  The flowers were done using acrylic paint.  They look OK, but this style is not my forte.
